The sea played an important role in Athens. Hale takes us through the development of the Athenian navy and Athenian democracy, how they were intertwined and how narrow the line was/is between the Navy's role in developing and supporting democracy and the use of the Navy to subjugate. It is interesting that Alfred Thayer Mahan in his "Influence of Seapower Upon History" barely mentions the Greeks at all. Hale does discuss tactics somewhat but that is not the main thrust of his work. Hale discusses the political aspects to a large extent while Mahan bases his work on the 'military' uses of seapower.
